For some days now, news of paternity scandal involved popular gospel singer, Evangelist Tope Alabi And his former estranged lover, Mayegun Olaoye, a popular music and movie marketer has been on the front burner.
The news became popular after Tope Alabi’s first born, Ayomikun Alabi granted The PUNCH an interview. In the interview, Ayomikun Alabi denied her biological father, Olaoye and made it very clear that she has no other father than Soji Alabi, the current husband of the popular gospel singer.
Ayomikun claimed that she was abandoned for over twenty years by the man who claimed to be her biological father.
However, the saga has taken another dimension, as Olaoye’s younger brother opened a can of worm on the crisis.
Below is his claim on the crisis;
“I am the brother to the Father and we can’t just be responding to all this matter because it might blow out of proportion that will now be as if we want to run Tope Alabi’s musical career down.
But with this advice she gave to Ayo to blow it on the media more without asking about how the blogger got the story might open past healed wounds for both parents who have moved on in life!
The fact is that a serious allegations of Ayomikun being a bastard came up and my brother had to state the facts that he is the father and can’t deny the fact that he gave birth to her.
If a blogger now wants to make story to trend with it, is it in any way my brothers fault?
I lived in same room with Tope and my brother at Oguntolu street in Onipanu those years, I can give you first hand information about how they met and how Tope took charge of him and they both begin to live as husband and wife.
My brother took good care of Tope throughout the pregnancy till she gave birth to the baby, He threw ‘owambe’ party with musicians on the bandstand majority of the ‘who is who’ of those days in the Yoruba Movie Producers and Marketers at Idumota were all in attendance.
Go ask any of them who know the story of Olaoye and Tope.
Do you know what Soji Alabi used to do with Tope when she was still married to my brother? Do you know how many times I came back from school to Lagos and met Soji in my brothers house with Tope alone? And all I could get when I told my brother was a beating of my life for saying rubbish of her wife and he was defending her that Soji was just her sound engineer and producer.
Hmmmmm!!!! until she moved out with the baby just barely a year old and the following year, she got married to Soji Alabi, that’s when the reality dawn on my brother. Do you know she left my brother to bankrupt when she left with a Movie and Music album my brother sponsored.
Let me tell you this and I challenge Tope Alabi to talk”, he stated.
